Wheatstone bridge

The standard low thermal scanner has leakages of about 10 12 Huarded. This provides a convenient means to set up an make high resistance measurements. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Because the sources have low impedances, the high guards can be connected directly to the source outputs. One of the Wheatstone bridge’s initial uses was for the purpose of soils analysis and comparison.

This system provides a simple yet guxrded way to activate both the high and low guard circuits. Different values of resistors can be compared over a wide range with the uncertainty is primarily dependant upon the scaling accuracy of the voltage source used.

This is done by using two voltage sources for two arms of the bridge as shown in the diagram below.

The desired value of R x is now known to be given as:. In a normal arrangement the leakage currents would cause errors of about 1 ppm at the 1 M W and ppm at M W. The Wheatstone bridge is the fundamental bridge, but there are other modifications that can be made to measure various kinds of resistances when the fundamental Wheatstone bridge is not suitable.

The Wheatstone bridge illustrates the concept of a difference measurement, which can be extremely accurate. By using a guarded scanner and two sources to form a guarded resistance wheztstone, measurements from K W to 10G W can be made with excellent accuracy.

The Kelvin bridge was specially adapted from the Wheatstone bridge for measuring very low resistances. Keeping both sides of the bridge at zero volts reduces leakage errors. The concept was extended to alternating current measurements by James Clerk Maxwell in and further improved by Alan Blumlein around This setup is frequently used in strain gauge and resistance thermometer measurements, as it is usually faster to read a voltage level off a meter than to adjust a resistance to zero the voltage.

To do so, one has nridge work out the voltage from each potential divider and subtract one from the other. OhmRef will wheatdtone up to 8 resistors to be compared at a time. The tare standard is always in the circuit, and the low thermal scanner is used to switch the standard and test resistors into the circuit one at a time.

Views Read Edit View history. In many cases, the significance of measuring the unknown resistance is related to measuring the impact of some physical phenomenon such as force, temperature, pressure, etc. Adjusting the source outputs to set the high impedance side of the bridge circuit to zero volts reduces errors caused by meter circuit loading.


At this point, the voltage between the two midpoints B and D will be zero.

Diode bridge H bridge. Electrical meters Bridge circuits Measuring instruments English inventions Impedance measurements. Some of the modifications are:. On the other hand, if the resistance of the galvanometer is high enough that I G is negligible, it is possible to compute R x from the three other resistor values and the supply voltage V Sor the supply voltage from all four resistor values.

Variations on the Wheatstone bridge can be guadred to measure capacitanceinductanceimpedance and other quantities, such as the amount of combustible gases in a sample, with an explosimeter. A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuitone leg of which includes the unknown component.
